“When He opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature saying, “Come and see.” And another horse, fiery red went out. And it was granted to the one who sat on it to take peace from the earth, and that people should kill one another; and there was given to him a great sword.”
The Second seal is broken and peace is taken from the earth, you probably read that passage pretty fast and maybe didn’t realize the very important keyword [peace.] Is it possible that after everything the world has experienced up to this point, the loss of millions worldwide and the economic collapse soon after the Rapture that peace will be in the world? frankly, yes, because [peace] will be taken away from the earth.
At the point of the Rapture, to the moment the Antichrist begins to gain power and authority, to the point when the second seal is broken, the Bible doesn’t specify the amount of time that passes between these events. It could be rather short given the suffering on earth or several years could pass.
Bible Prophecy often reveals specific events and sequences of events. But rarely does it reveal the exact time when events will occur.
In order for the second seal to be broken, the Antichrist will have to have established a firm power base and people willing to work under a new world order that the antichrist will soon establish, any country that has influence or any authority will naturally be a threat.
The opening of the second seal judgment states that peace is taken from the earth resulting in war, many in the bible prophecy community conclude that the second seal will usher in a war scenario that may come close to resembling another World War. By the time the second seal is broken it appears that the antichrist may have brought the 10 Kings or 10 other nations under his complete authority. Without a power base the antichrist will not have enough power, authority and the means to go to war. Revelation 17:12 “The ten horns [nations] which you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they receive authority as kings with the beast [antichrist] for one hour.”
However, Daniel 7:24 points out, The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom. After them another king will arise, different from the earlier ones; he will subdue three kings.
This is where I feel the US may play a role in the antichrist efforts to gain complete authority over the world. Its only speculation on my part but I feel the antichrist may have already betrayed the US at the opening of the second seal order to gain control over our remaining military and armaments, or is planning to betray the US by the time the second seal is fulfilled, again, this is only speculation on my part.
Next. The Third Seal Judgment.
